My Students

All of my children learn math, science, and technology from me. Although they have similar traits, it is because of those traits that they have diverse backgrounds. Their family struggles are brought to school. However, they will succeed with your help.

Some of them have learning difficulties, they live in poverty, and all qualify to receive free lunch.

They are all ELL students. My kids work very hard to overcome all the struggles that they are facing at such a young age. They will overcome the many challenges that they bring from home and outperform the expectations they have of themselves.

My Project

My students need a flexible classroom. Could you imagine sitting in a desk and chair ALL day!? By implementing flexibility in our classroom, my students' learning will expand through happier and more engaging minds!

A relaxed mind is a productive mind.

According to the Huffington Post, a relaxed mind has many health benefits. Among those, there are several mental health benefits like memory boost, and better decision making.

My students need this flexible seating to help set a relaxing atmosphere for learning. Also, light filters that take away the harsh glare and flickers from typical fluorescent classroom lighting that can cause eyestrain, headaches, and anxiety for students.
